Beppe Bezzi was pessimistic about his chances with Foggy swamp, but came through to win, just ahead of David Moore, whose Freight Train steamed its way into a very close second place, which combined with Robert Macrae's fourth place, sent Moore to the top of the leaderboard, with a nine point lead over Bezzi and Macrae.

This round saw the introduction of the Q^2 scan into '88, with both Moore and Macrae's Kitchen Sink II and using one. Will this make an impact on the '88 Hill in the near future?
